not in the federal government. this is the most interesting thing that obama has said on a philosophical level and he said that he had never realized what buying this meant. and i said at the time if you are 52 years old and you are just now learning that buying insurance is complicated, maybe you should not have tried to redo the entire country. [laughter] [laughter] [applause] [applause] but this one press conference when he was clearly rattled and it is almost painful, different images between defeat and dismay and disillusion and whatever the other words were. two of the things are rather personal and one is that he also said that he did not realize that it would be more complicated to buy health insurance than it is to kayak, through ebay, through amazon. the founders of facebook supported him in the idea that he didn't bring in these guys, he said, how hard do you think it will be for 250 million people to have a complex system and with their personal information we can tell them what their subsidy is never know the cost. [laughter] >> apparently nobody who was competent said that it was much h
. as for the acid victim, the 43-year-old lost most of his sight in one eye and 20% in the other. he's undergone 20 operations so far. jenna: what a story. thank you. jon: president obama is trying hard to reach the invincibles, pushing younger, healthier adults to sign up for insurance on health but does it make financial sense for young people who rarely see a doctor to buy into obamacare. here's a look at this story. >> the question is, and everyone can relate to this if you look back far enough, when you were in your 20's, how often did you get sick and just pop an aspirin and a sudefed? many young invincibles, 18 to 34, choose not to buy insurance because it doesn't make economic sense to them. faced with rent, a car payment, auto insurance, food, clothing, they would rather spend leftover money on travel, entertainment and beer than pay $100 to $200 for insurance for a policy that the average man or woman may not think that they need. >> a lot of people can't afford it the way it is these days. >> like six or seven of my friends are uninsured right now. >> some friends save money and
this which is why they voted to reject territory status in a referendum held one year ago. the obama administration recognizes this as well, which is why it proposed the first federally sponsored status vote in puerto rico's history to resolve the issue once and for all. and finally, members of congress, from both bodies, comprehend this which is why 125 of them have co-sponsored legislation i introduced that provides for an up or down vote in puerto rico on the territory's admission as a state and outlines the steps the federal government will take if a majority of voters favor admission. there are many reasons to oppose puerto rico's territory status, which is unequal, undemocratic and un-american. one of the most important reasons why puerto rico must discard this status in favor of either statehood or nationhood is because the current status has failed and will continue to fail to provide the island's 3.6 million american citizens with the economic opportunities and the quality of life they deserve. those who refuse to acknowledge this fundamental truth for ideological reasons ar
, they defeated the taliban. provided some weapons. they defeated the taliban. people have forgotten but for years in iraq people referred to afghanistan, even senator obama, that's where the real fight is, that's where it was done well, and it was done well. the taliban was defeated. it was routed by some of the most incredible and fearless am. ting led by general dust we have people in this administration now calling him and others war criminals because they fought for themselves, their own freedom to rid themselves of tyrannical, radical islamists. they are muslims. they are my muslim friends. . they defeated our enemy. they are the enemy of our enemy. and yet this administration is releasing taliban, one of the taliban leaders that's been on was al afghan television eleased from guantanamo by this administration for humanitarian purposes and the humanitarian purposes are now he's back leading taliban and making clear that the taliban will control all of afghanistan once the united states pulls out. he likes to talk in terms of how the u.s. has been greatly defeated and that's why we're beggin
on that. i know that jeff will come to the white house early next year. that position that he is filling now will be filling by a successor. thatnoticed that last week president obama, and you today, using theosh avoided word obamacare. is that now -- >> i came out and talked about obamacare several times. >> i do not hear people using the word anymore. >> watchword? >> obamacare. >> i think you're going to sue me somewhere. [laughter] fine witht i am calling obamacare, the president is fine with it. we are focused on making sure that the care part is delivered to the americans that want it. whether it is the affordable care act, obamacare, or anything else, what matters to the president is that the benefits available to every american who gets covered through the exchanges, or have covered all the -- already, is delivered. or one of us who has insurance coverage already has benefits from the afford will care act, from obamacare. child between 18 and 26, that child is now able to stay on your insurance coverage, where before they were not. there are benefits when it comes insurers,bility
out of london. martha: just a reminder of the background and what happened in benghazi last year. four americans were killed on september 11th, the terrorist attack on the consulate began about 9:40 p.m. that night. among those kills, u.s.ç ambassador craig stevens. the obama administration initially said it was a protest against a film that had come out. he was the first u.s. diplomat killed in overseas violence since 1979. >>> and meanwhile, president obama's taking aim at his republican critics while trying to appeal to his base. here he is yesterday. >> if you still don't like obamacare -- and i know you don't -- [laughter] even though it's built on market-based ideas of choice and competition in the private sector, then you should explain how exactly you'd cut costs and cover more pop and make insurance more secure. you owe it to the american people to tell us what you are for.ç not just what you're against. [applause] martha: so the president talking to a warm crowd there, but he was addressing republicans in that statement saying that they needed to come up with a better alt
of democrats. you had the obamas, you had the clintons, and many democrats in there going to make sure we won. and with 22 governors' seats up next year that republicans have to defend, i think we're going to see more terry mcauliffes coming into office and whittling town the majority that they now hold -- down the majority that they now hold among republicans in governors' mansions. jon: you also had the republican closing that gap pretty substantially in the last few days, and some folks say if that election had been held a couple of weeks later, it might have been different. anyway, andrea, the republican party is often described as being beset by this schism between tea party members and other more long-term, longtime, more traditional maybe republicans. what do you think about what's happening apparently in the democratic party right now? >> sure. it's on both sides of the aisle. david's not being intellectually honest. the right has their far right, and the left has their far left. democrats have done a pretty good job of keeping their intra-party fighting out of the headlines until rec
. the framers were students of history, james madison. 150 years before they took a pen and wrote out this clause there was a fight with james i about what was called royal prerogative. very similar to what president obama is claiming, the right of the game to essentially stand above the law to reform the law to the kings views. i'm not saying that president obama is a monarch but that was the issue that gave the impetus to this clause, in my view. the language did not change very much. later, people like benjamin -- the dispensing power of the president. he wrote a very good paper about when the president can refuse to enforce laws. he basically said he could only be done -- they could only be done when there's intrusion upon executive power. by the way, that's was involved in the myers case we talked about, referred to earlier. or if it was clearly unconstitutional, and that second issue, established had to be very, very clear so the president does not exercise that authority. this is a i would respond. we don't have to hyperventilate to look any problem and take it is not about who
